everyone needs to see this film....
12 December 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This teleplay version of the beautiful play by Ruby Dee is just wonderful. Ruby Dee stars as Zora Neale Hurston, the magnificent playwright from the Harlem Renaissance. This play is really a collection of all of the stories Zora Neale Hurston compiled in Eatonville, Florida straight from the mouths of the predominantly African-American community there. This film has humor, folklore and intelligent insight. It truly gives a glimpse into the vision of an intelligent, eloquent woman with a vision. This will definitely make you want to go out and read "Of Mules and Men" and "Their Eyes Were Watching God." (Truly great books!!!)
